Unfortunately you'll need to trim the excess surfacing off using the trim tool, then use the "Knit Surface" command.

When using the "Knit Surface", you'll have an option to create a solid body if your surfaces are "Water-tight"; seamed properly.

If the option is not available, there is something wrong with your geometry.

"Pierce Point" relations are your best friend making solids from surfaces.

Hope this helps :)

SW requires you to have a closed surface in order to make it a solid body so you can't!
